In line with the Fitzwilliam Museum Mission adopted in December 2019, the Museum is committed to developing its work and reputation as a great public asset and an extraordinary scholarly resource within the University, the region and the world.  The Museum is entering a new era, having recently welcomed a new team of Deputy Directors with a shared commitment to engage powerfully with as wide a public as possible, producing and presenting compelling interdisciplinary collections-based research. The Museum is going through a period of transformational change, making this an exciting time to be joining.
